A Time of Progress and Problems (Sisters in Time Book 16)
In 1893 Emily Allerton goes to the Chicago World’s Fair and finds a way to make during an economic depression.
Time Period: 1893 It’s 1893, and technology is making Emily Allerton’s world a better place. This fictional twelve year old can hardly believe the inventions displayed at the Chicago World’s Fair-unusual things like ”automobiles.” But soon, an economic depression throws many Americans out of work, leaving them homeless and hungry-and creating Emily’s opportunity to make a difference. Especially for girls ages eight to twelve, this story shows young readers that they, too, can have an impact on their world. Perfect for recreational reading or homeschooling, ”Emily Makes a Difference” is an enjoyable way to learn important lessons of faith and history.
